It's The Same Old Dream Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

I can see a steeple surrounded by people
Oh, how real it all starts to seem
Just as the choir is singing my alarm starts ringing
It's the same old dream

And then my thoughts inspire a scene by the fire
In a cottage close by a stream
I know it all by heart now, we're about to part now
It's the same old dream

If you but knew
How many times I pretend that I'm with you
I'm sure your heart would unbend, you'd see me through
Until my dream had a happy ending

And I can picture clearly the things I love dearly
In the center you reign supreme
We kiss and I discover I'm a lonesome lover
It's the same old dream

We kiss and I discover I'm a lonesome lover
It's the same old dream
